    Been searching the web for anything that even looks like it.
    Nothing.
    It might just be something homemade.
    If it is, the guy did a great job.

    Found out what it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    It's to form model boat propellers.
    Change the pitch to match the speed.

    Guy on the Hobby forum knew what it was.
    Now we know.
    It's good to learn something new every once in a while.

    Yes I can be long winded. Yes I follow rabbit trails. Yes I admit when I am wrong. Your mileage may vary.

    I'd hazard a guess that they once belonged to a Tinker, and used to make bowels and such. I've seen some somewhat similar tools in a jewelry supply store.

    The guy I got it from did race model boats.
    There was a board set of props that I didn't get.
    Bunch of built and unbuilt boats that i didn't take.
    mystery solved.

    Found a site that shows how to use it.
    Not the same as the one I have, but works the same.

    It looks like I did not post a guess. But, I would have guessed it to be a tool used for forming metal. Something like bowels or ash trays. You find some of the coolest stuff!

    Thanks.
    I kind of like weird things.
    I would guess only a serious, model boat race,r would have known what this was.

    According to information i got from the Hobby Forum, It was made by a guy named Jim Osborne.
    He must have made a few of them. Guy posted a picture of one in way better condition than the one I have.
    Said is sold a few years back for $75.00.
    At least mines has all the parts.
